Belinda Brown Talks Sense About Childcare On Woman Sour

Belinda Brown - not the lady in the image above - is a social anthropologist, and one of very few winners of the J4MB Maggie award: https://j4mb.wordpress.com/2015/06/11...
Links to some of her excellent articles and papers are on her award certificate.
This Woman Sour discussion about childcare - which all the major parties wish parents to outsource to strangers - was chaired by Jenni Murray, and the other contributor was Giselle Cory of the Institute of Public Policy Research, a left-wing British thinktank.

It should come as no surprise to anyone that Belinda's contribution was superior to Giselle's, giving appropriate consideration to women's wishes as mothers of young children, rather than just as economic workhorses, to be bribed into more paid employment than they want through a tax system which penalises parents who want to look after their children at home.

J4MB is calling for fully transferable income tax allowances for couples with children.
